There is nothing more stressful as a punter than picking the Melbourne Cup champion. Continue reading “An Against All Podds Guide to the Melbourne Cup”
We love rivalries! But we may just have found a modern classic from the most unlikely of sources…
Well we can’t say we expected swimming to be the front and centre this week… but here we are! The Lunatic is joined by Tub and the Jinx to run through the usual NRL action. Is Ben Hunt a little hard done by and has the NRL backed themselves into a corner with the suspension to Billy Kikau? Penrith are now surging but are we just destined to see the Storm cruise to another Grand Final, or will Manly give them a warning shot? Mug and Champ gave us some live gold as all hell broke loose in the Swimming world! Surely they can’t take out both awards?
(2:00) Mack Horton the hero, (7:43) NRL news, (18:16) Eels vs Warriors, (24:39) Storm vs Manly, (30:12) Panthers vs Raiders, (36:10) World Cup Final and Wimbledon, (43:00) Mug & Champ of the week.
As for deciders, was that the best we have seen?! One thing we know for sure is that Origin is well and truly alive.
The Jinx and Lunatic are on board for their rapid reaction to Game III, that was simply a game for the ages. The Blues have gone back to back, but there is plenty of silver lining for Queensland as they look towards 2020! The boys will run through all the big moments and discuss who has cemented their spots for another year. I guess we have to face the reality that we won’t see a better game than that this season, cheers Freddie!
A Freddie masterclass now means the Blues have the Maroons right where they want them and it’s got Kevvie burning up!
This week Tubba is joined by the Lunatic and Jinx to discuss all the fallout from Origin 2 (2:05). It was a night to forget for Queensland and is a New South Wales dynasty now back on the cards? The NRL action returns after Rep Round and we are treated with a Grand Final rematch (31:00). Will the Storm continue their dominance and keep the Roosters sliding? Outside the NRL it was a big week in the sporting world for Mugs (37:45) and Champs (50:30). Israel Folau simply hasn’t learnt and our Aussie women have had a week to remember (except the Matildas). But as usual only one will take home the cake.
Can someone explain what is going on in New South Wales? Is this the end for Freddie and does anyone know what he’s thinking?
Panic Stations! That’s the theme of this week’s podcast with the fallout from Origin selections. Has Freddie lost the plot or is this a masterclass? Who really knows… but we’ll sink our teeth in nonetheless. Joining Tubba, the Lunatic and Jinx this week is long time fan, Matty (Bieber) to discuss Origin II and why there’s still a chance the Blues can bring a decider back to Sydney. As for the NRL action we are yet again talking negatives with the crusher tackle rearing its ugly head more than once this weekend. But it’s not all doom and gloom, Tommy Turbo was back with a bang and forces us to discuss who is the best fullback in the game. As usual we love to look around the globe for the best and worst in sport, you won’t want to miss this edition of Champ and Mug of the week!
Ok ok… first of all we’re sorry we went missing like Latrell in Origin I. But we’re back and ready to roll, just like a Mitchell Pearce recall.
With so much to catch up on since our last pod. We’ll touch on what the team has been up to, like going to parties with no reception and buying overpriced shoes whilst on holidays. But we know you deserve more than that! Tubba will run the Lunatic and Jinx through the Rugby League trade circus and Origin fallout that has the Blues on the ropes according to some. The season is starting to shape up and we may be looking at the worst team to make a finals series in recent memory. It’s round 14 in the NRL and we’ll touch on every game as usual, plus look around the world with our Champ and Mug of the week (Including a new Aussie hero!)
The five year plan is over after eight years at the foot of the mountain for Gus Gould. Did he really leave the Panthers in a better position?
The Lunatic and Jinx are on board for another week to discuss the week in Rugby League. Gus has run out of things to do in Penrith and has packed his bags, while Nathan Brown is still learning how to coach in Newcastle. We finally got our first taste of Bankwest Stadium and the Eels didn’t let down their fans. Will it become a fortress for the remainder of the season? Round 7 again throws us some do or die match ups, we’ll touch on every game with our picks and look at who took home the Champ and Mug of the week.
It’s good to be back after a couple of weeks on the back burner… Origin isn’t too far away and we were given one of the great weekends in world sport.
After a few weeks on the sidelines Tubba, the Lunatic and Jinx return to the field to sink their teeth back into the world of Rugby League. We farewell a champion of the game in Greg Inglis and look at a few other players that should hang up the boots or look at new careers. Should the Panthers and Knights start getting desperate as they enter round 6 of the NRL? We’ll touch on all the games and where we see them going. Plus look at a few memorable moments in sport, including Tiger’s incredible feat at Augusta!
Oh no… we’ve got a Parra Pod on our hands! They are right when they say nothing brings the crowds back like winning.
Tubba returns from her bye week and is ready to run the boys through another eventful week in Rugby League. As usual the Lunatic and Jinx are onboard, but this week Dougie has been struck by blue and gold fever and couldn’t help but join us! Is Fergo already the signing of the season? Should Widdop farewell the Dragons? And are the Sharks actually good? All this and much more as the team runs through the key talking points from round two in the NRL and what’s on the cards in round three. Plus the infamous Mug and Champ of the week!
It’s safe to say that we are glad footy is back… but for some fans they may be wondering what they’ll do for the next 24 rounds!
The Lunatic and Jinx are fresh off their visit to Panthers Stadium over the weekend and things may be worse than they seem at the foot of the mountains. Are the Broncos in the same pickle as last year? and are the Storm potentially a better side in 2019? Join the boys as they run through the key talking points from round one in the NRL and what’s on the cards in round two.
